5867 Wilkins Avenue is a stone mansion in the quaint Pittsburgh neighborhood of Squirrel Hill. Built in 1910, it’s no doubt this six-bedroom home has a rich past.

We contracted Carol Peterson to research the home’s history. Read the full report here.

  • Built by Oscar and Anne Babcock in 1910, the home’s construction cost was around $20,000.
  • Oscar’s brother Edward was a mayor of Pittsburgh.
  • The Babcocks employed two servants who lived at the home, and chauffeurs who lived above the garage.
  • The house’s unique design  was influenced by Prairie and Mission styles.
  • After the Civil War, prosperous families moved to Squirrel Hill to escape the crowded, smoky Downtown Pittsburgh region.
  • The home has had a total of six owners.

5867 Wilkins Avenue was sold by broker Mark Jennings and agent Michelle Sager in August 2017, listed for $1,250,000.
